Dear Forum users,

I would like to get some help on expanding the given phrases to clauses. The underlined sentence is a phrase.

1. People living in glass houses cannot throw stones at others.
2. she is an intelligent girl.
3. Inspite of being ill the student attended the classes.
4. Let us wait till Sam's arrival.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards..

3. Inspite of being ill the student attended the classes.
4. Let us wait till Sam's arrival.


1. People who live in glass houses cannot throw stones at others.
2. she is a girl who is intelligent.

3 is a concessive clause.

4 may be transformed in this way:

Let us wait for Sam who is arriving (soon).

I am not sure about the last one :)

Did I pass the test?
